"Sasquatch Hunter" by trade, Rick Dyer claims to not only have found, but shot the mythical Bigfoot in September last year and today has finally decided to upload the pictures of his big kill to show the world, The Huffington Post reported.

Mr Dyer claims on his website to have killed the creature in San Antonio, Texas, and used the irresistible lure of pork ribs nailed to a tree as bait. He then shot 7ft 10in Bigfoot as it fed and the body remains in Dyer's posession.

However, many are sceptical to Dyer's claims as he announced in 2008 he killed the beast, but those claims turned out to be false (his friend was wearing a rubber ape suit), which is the reason he delayed his posting so that he could get further proof that his Bigfoot, named "Hank" is the real deal.

Mr. Dyer told US TV station KSAT: "Every test that you can possibly imagine was performed on this body - from DNA tests to 3D optical scans to body scans.

"It is the real deal. It's Bigfoot and Bigfoot's here, and I shot it and now I'm proving it to the world."

More On This...

There will be a news conference held in the next few days and while we await official confirmation on the creature (we won't hold our breath) Mr. Dyer also intends to showcase his prize kill by taking Bigfoot on tour to show the public.
